Our Service

Our Service

Sixt car hire services in Berlin extend far beyond a basic rental package: our huge fleet of vehicles from high-end luxury brands such as BMW, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes-Benz mean you can enjoy a premium experience at an affordable price. With car categories spanning from economy city cars to luxury saloons and estate cars to transport the whole family in, the options are endless. We can also cater to more specific tastes, with a range of convertibles, sports cars and 4x4s on offer across the city. If you are travelling in a larger group we have minibuses available catering to up to 9 passengers, and for those transporting goods we also offer vans and equipment such as tow bars from certain locations.

Our Available Extras:

  • Have Sat Nav devices or child seats fitted to your vehicle
  • Add an additional named driver to the insurance contract
  • If travelling during the winter months then add winter tyres or snow chains to your rental
Travel from the Airport quickly into the Centre

Travel from the Airport quickly into the Centre

If you are arriving in Berlin by plane you will either arrive in Schönefeld on the eastern outskirts of Berlin or Wedding if you land at Tegel. If the traffic is good, it will take about half an hour to get from Tegel to Alexanderplatz with its famous television tower, and around forty from Schönefeld.

Editors note: Its a good idea to use a Sat Nav or Google Maps on your smartphone while driving in Berlin. Be prepared to assert yourself on the road and know that Berlin drivers are quick to use their horns. Also be aware that there are numerous cyclists in the city whom you need to look out for, especially when turning.

Parking on the street is not recommended, especially in the city centre where it can be expensive. For example, an hour in Prenzlauer Berg can easily cost 3 euros but, in a nearby side street, its just one euro. As an alternative, you would be better off using car parks to park your car hire in Berlin where you will find affordable daily rates. Its good to know as well that central Berlin is a low emission zone, but when you rent a car with Sixt this is no concern as all of our vehicles are the most recent models and carry the necessary sticker.

Berlin spans almost nineteen miles from East to West and has excellent transportation infrastructure. Travelling in your hire car, you can get from the Berlin ring-road to the city centre in about half an hour, as long as the traffic is on your side. Be warned: rush hour can be frustrating and bring traffic to a halt, not to mention the various roadworks and building sites across the city as Berlin continues to undergo change. Therefore, it often makes sense to use the A100 motorway, even it means making a bit of a detour. This way with your car rental you can reach outer-lying districts like Steglitz fairly quickly.

If you took the train into Berlin then you will find yourself at the Hauptbahnhof central station, which was newly opened in 2006. The station is very central, just a 10 minute drive from Alexanderplatz, but unlike other cities the surrounding area is not as vibrant and lively as you may expect. Sightseeing highlights such as the Natural History Museum and the Hamburger Bahnhof are just a short walk away however, so you can enjoy these before picking up your car hire and heading out to explore other areas of the city. Head to famous sights such as the Reichstag (5 min) and the Jewish Synagogue (6 min), and look out for the Chancellery building (popularly known as the Washing Machine) on the way to the Reichstag. You can have fun in Berlin sightseeing at Museum Island and the Brandenburg Gate or go on long shopping trips. The Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg, Münzstraße in the centre, and Bergmannstrasse in Kreuzberg are all recommended.

Berlins Unique Culture and Fast-Paced Nightlife

Berlins Unique Culture and Fast-Paced Nightlife

If you enjoy festivals, concerts and culture, Berlin is the place to be. From the New Years party at the Brandenburg Gate to the Carnival of Cultures or the Fete de la Musique, Berlin offers a top class cultural programme. Since German unification, Berlin has become the countrys most exciting city. This is mainly due to the creative enterprises which, since the 1990s, have taken up residence in vacant buildings and started various ventures. The largest of these is certainly Berlins club culture, which is unrivalled worldwide. To party late into the night you could go to Chalet, Gretchen, Kosmonaut or Humboldthain. The open air locations such as Else Club, Ipse and Magdalena are also worth a visit, especially in the Summer. Music bars like Haus am See, Promenaden Eck or the Minimal bar are recommended to those who dont want to be stuck within quite such a crowd. Berghain or Watergate arent recommended because of their strict door policy. If you do visit any of these places, please leave the rental car behind; you can experience first-hand the infamous local attitude from a native Berliner taxi driver on your ride home.

The hill that the station sits upon is named Teufelsberg, literally Devils Mountain, and the Teufelsee lake nearby is perfect for swimming in the summer.

Pro tip: do keep your fuelling receipts!


Update: invoice correction process went smoothly; I'm positively surprised with the customer service; -1 star for the unnecessary mix-up in the first place.


Tanked full ~10km from the airport. Return staff asked if tank is full and acknowledged the positive answer. Afterwards, not informing me, the guy noted a not a full tank (7/8; where car has >800km range). Still I've got an e-mail receipt with no extra fuelling charges, only to be corrected 2h later with ca. ~100 EUR total extra for fuelling.
